The Christmas Shoes is a made-for-TV movie, broadcast on CBS in December 2002. It is based on the hit song and novel of the same name. It was shot in Halifax, Nova Scotia.[1] It is the first part of a trilogy, followed by The Christmas Blessing (2005) and The Christmas Hope (2009).

The film has three plot lines. One story is about a man named Robert Layton and his deteriorating marriage; another is about Robert's heartbroken mother Ellen and her friendly neighbor Dalton; and the main story is about Maggie Andrews and her sickness, and how her family (her husband, Jack, and son, Nathan) deal with it. All three stories are linked together.

Synopsis

Primarily set in 1985, Maggie Andrews talks about how she had a pair of dancing shoes just like the ones in a story read by Nathan's teacher (Dalton). The story is about a girl who is paralyzed and can no longer dance, but feels magical when she puts on her dancing shoes.
